i thought this was interesting. a few years ago milliband claimed that putin could have had an involvement in the death (assassination) of alexandre litvenko, which occurred in england. putin took it as a personal insult and the english lost two senior positions in russia some forms of embassy officials. any way it looks as though the uk has had to review the situation for trade and although the situation is said to still be poor it has seemed to improve. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8337484.stm do you think the situation has improved or do you think the anglo russian relationship is still poor.
